Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest Social Meta Tags for Blogger

Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest Social Meta Tags
In order to get more and more visitors to your blog, you must be a wonder to share the posts on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest etc. But unfortunately, when your readers click the sharing buttons, they can not share the correct post description and thumbnail. In these cases, you have to render social media tags inside your blogger template to avoid the wrong post description and thumbnail.
You might have noticed that comment avatar, and other irrelevant images from your sidebars come up when you share the post on Facebook. The solution to this is to specify the image in the page metadata. We will be using open graph tags for the same. Go to Template > Edit HTML and just below the <head> tag Paste the following code snippet:
